The use of outside experts, creative time-management and rich resources can greatly enhance pupils' learning experience. Our STEM activities enable pupils to explore and understand concepts whilst developing their personal learning and thinking skills.
The varied Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 activities are matched to learning needs and make connections between the STEM National Curriculum and other subjects, creating a cross-curricular dimension. Inclusion of Key Stage 3 activities challenge the more able pupils and introduce them to secondary level concepts, improving the transition between primary and secondary school.
The activities are designed to increase motivation, pupil self-confidence and raises awareness of their potential as scientists, engineers and technologists. Some of the activities lend themselves to a pic ‘n' mix activity day to suit your school's requirements.
Pupils engage with design, technology and science in an exciting and hands-on way by building small remote-controlled robots and taking part in challenges.
